If Alec and Derek are to make a sequel it would have to be after Heroes and Villains, after Marian, and after he gets all his other projects out of the way. And of course all the legal crap involved with it. And I would imagine that by the time he gets finished with all that he'd be pretty worn-out. And the last thing he needs is a bunch of screaming fans demanding that he do more work. I think we should let Alec take a break, because after all, he deserves it. If he started working on a sequel right away he won't be able to put all his effort into it (and possibly wouldn't want to) which results in a worse game, which is bad for all. I would rather he made the game later and to it's full capacity, because a game like Aquaria deserves a good sequel.

You make a good point.  I understand the burnt out feeling many people feel after completing a huge project, and wondering if everything they did was really worth it to them, all the stress and time they put into it.  I'm just concerned because Alec seems a little down, and seems down on the idea of a sequel.  I 'm a worrier, I just can't help it, but hey, I'd be more than willing to wait five or ten years for a sequel...if it's given the same heart as the original. 

A little work hiatus to clear your head sometimes makes the next project all the sweeter.

I'll keep asking for an Aquaria sequel until we get it, the sequel to the greatest Indie game of all times, and one of the greatest games period.

I'm thinking this summer... I'll probably try to just chill.

Read a lot... swim a lot... nap a lot... make out a lot...

Maybe not get a lot of games done.

Yeah man, just take it easy. All of us looking forward to something more in the future obviously have a vested and biased interest, but seriously, personal time comes first. Doesn't matter whether it's game development or something else, them brain meats overheat if you're not too careful.

As someone who appreciates both Aquaria and what glimpses of your personal vision you've let slip on these forums, I highly encourage you to just distance yourself from all this stuff and get in tune with your muse.  Run with it, wherever it leads you, even if it means we won't see a sequel for awhile...or ever. I've rather see what you have to offer when you can get into it, and not something that you have to force out of yourself.
